of the apartment complex we are told that's the residence of james holmes. inside that residence, inside that apartment unit is a booby-trapped apartment, according to the chief of the aurora police department, daniel oates. we were told by the aurora fire department inside there are numerous bottles containing some type of unknown liquid. connected to the bottles are wires. it is a sophisticated sort of contraption or operation that the suspect set up in this apartment. it seems he was methodical a in his plan. at this point, we have been told by the fire department, by the police that they have snapped photographs from the outside of the apartment through a window hoping to use those photographs to dissect what's inside that apartment so they can safely move into that unit and try to disable those explosives. in the meantime, behind me here you can see numerous fire trucks. they have had ladders extended all morning. they are here just in case the bomb squad and fire department decides to detonate whatever is inside the apartment. back to you. >> you have been speaking to residents the

and talk about it. >> we believe that as part of this assault mr. holmes set off two devices to distract the crowd. they ignited in some form and released some sort of irritant or smoke. the suspect was dressed all in black. he was wearing a ballistic helmet, a tactical ballistic vest, ballistic leggings, a throat protector and a groin protector and a gas mask and black tactical gloves. >> he clearly wanted to survive. he clearly wanted to feel and look military in doing this. what does that tell you? >> well, you know, normally mass murderers end up dead at the end of the day. they don't care. they're fed one life. they want their name in the headlights and ah-hha, ha, i ha done it. and in norway when he mowed down children on the island. he's been in court bragging. put out the manifesto. i wouldn't be surprised if this guy read it. there is a new breed that wants to commit the crime and get to enjoy, you know, the benefits of stull being alive. >> pat, i'm curious what you are saying about the norway shooter and the potential commonality is interesting to me. i'm thinking of jared lau

police put evidence bags on his hands to preserve any gunshot residue, james holmes pretended the bags were puppets. police are searching for a motive and getting help from the fbi behavioral analysis unit. formal charges are coming monday but it will be months before he's arraigned and enters a plea of guilty, not guilty or as most expect not guilty by reason of insanity. we start with nbc's jay gray outside the century theater in aurora. jay, we are learning more about the suspect's bizarre behavior and his booby trapped apartment. what's the latest on both of those? >> reporter: s.e., let's break this down in a couple of ways. first the reaction from people here after that appearance. a lot of them are saying that this is all an ability, that this is building up to, as you have talked about, some insanity plea and it's frustrating for those survivors, those who have lived through this and this community that's been shattered here. a lot of people point to what investigators are finding inside the apartmenting like you talk about about. how can a man plan this out for so many months

to take on this type of case. >> gary, in all likelihood james holmes' defense counsel will plead ngi, not guilty by reason of insanity. how high of a bar is that, how hard is it to prove that someone like james holmes is in fact insane? >> well, the point is that the defense doesn't have to prove insanity. so once the defense raises will issue, if it's an issue in the case and there's some evidence of insanity, the prosecution has to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that he wasn't insane. so no matter what the bar in, a case with this magnitude of publicity, the prosecution has to prove beyond a reasonable doubt. i think you've seen the machine star rolling. and that is that issues like premeditation and thoughtful planning and kind a script that this defendant had done things leading up to this which kind of rolls into the idea of premeditation rather than some act that's abhorrent or much outside the scope, kind of the intent of the normal defendant tried here. so the people will prove if they can, you know, that this wasn't an act springing from some diseased mind, but, rather, lit

on a rampage, dozens of victims. lives lost. it applies to james holmes who will undoubtedly face charges for shoot up a theater but also jerry sandusky who had a different assault, different kind of violence. both times asking how can it be prevented. it's difficult to manifest, more horrifying than fiction can present. every time evil men do evil things. it's why we try in vein so many times to prevent it from happening again. institutions respond, well, institutionally by handing down broad and in discriminate promises and oversight. ncaa brought down. no one thinks sandusky's co-workers weren't trained to report him. the problem is jerry sandusky is a monster and his buddies allowed him to be. for james holmes there will be institutional responses as well, broad and in discriminating. the call for gun control that inevitably stirs after a tragedy is just as defective with dealing with unmitigated evil because evil will find as way as john hickenlooper pointed out sunday. >> you look at this person, again, almost a creature. if he couldn't have gotten access to the guns, what kind of b

to try our best to find a way to deem them constitutional. >> quoted oliver wendell holmes to say we have to find the constitutionality within the law that was passed through the legislative branch. >> right. absolutely. >> well, josh, let me ask you about this. country like israel doesn't have a formal constitution. we tend to think of our supreme court's primary function being determining the constitutionality of a particular law that was passed. what are the -- are these supreme courts in other countries even functioning through the same lens as our supreme court? or do they have a totally different model? >> well, that's kind of an ongoing debate. the flip side of that is the country like south africa where the constitution not only has negative rights, like we have in ours, but actually, you know, lays out certain positive rights. so the south african constitution gives people the right to health care, the right to adequate housing. and so often people will challenge laws in that country based on, you know, the government being inadequately providing services, which is just a complet
